I've been reading Guided Math as part of TBA's book study and have loved it so far. Brenda at Primary Inspired is hosting. So far, everything the book suggests is practical. You gotta love that! I have always loved using children's literature across the curriculum, especially in Math. The author, Laney Sammons, suggests taking that a step farther and getting your students to create their own math stories. Start with simple word problems, but work your way up to longer stories with illustrations! I think my kids will absolutely LOVE this!
